Curren$y’s collaborative album with Freddie Gibbs, ‘Fetti,’ has officially released. The nine track album was produced by The Alchemist, who previously collaborated with Curren$y. This albums announced over two years ago, although the artists have since revealed that it took them only two days to record the entire project.
It all started in 2011, when New Orleans native rapper Curren$y teamed up with legendary producer The Alchemist to bring us ‘Covert Coup.’ The Alchemist, known for his unorthodox sample chop, heavy drum and diverse addition of instrumentation teamed up with Curren$y’s southern smooth playa car talk style to bring us something many hip-hop heads consider a classic mixtape. ‘Covert Coup’ brings us bangers such as “Scottie Pippens” featuring Freddie Gibbs, where you see the beginning of a good chemistry and collaborative relationship begin to develop. From Gary, Indiana, Gibbs is known for his trapper gone rapper status flow. Seven years later, the dynamic trio have reunited to bring us the highly-anticipated ‘Fetti.’
‘Fetti’ delivers a style of modern day rap while combining the styles of all three artists to bringing us a music that is an experience just as much as it is a piece of unadulterated hip-hop. The smooth sample, Alchemist production flows swiftly allowing Curren$y and Gibbs to showcase their fast paced, witty, lyrical approaches. Displayed on records such as “Bundy & Sincere” and “The Blow” the two take turns demolishing the beat. There is a twist though, this go around they were able to deliver a slow melodic singing on records like “Now & Later”. Although “Fetti” is a short tape, its nine record only spinning for 24 minutes, It’s something that die hard lovers of hip-hop and those who appreciate the art of different sonics are sure to love.
